Amazon Peru from Cusco
Manu Park from Cusco
The Manu Parkhosts a commendable biodiversity, so much so that biologists and naturists from all over the world spend months of the year researching the variety of birds and mammals without forgetting the beauty of its flora with an extensive variety of orchids. With more than 2 million hectares and diverse ecological levels that go from the forest of clouds and low jungle, the Manu is wonderful.
To get to Manu Park from Cusco, a path of hallucination begins through the mountains and jungle that reaches the Manu National Park. Ideally, start the route early in the morning to see the breathtaking scenery along this trip that first travels along a paved road that then becomes a trail and ends at the end to continue traveling by river. The route departs to Manu National Park from Cusco towards Paucartambo, in the valley of the Mapacho River. Here you arrive after 2 hours of travel going south and then taking a detour that climbs a mountain by a zig zag to finally become a trail.
After an hour of climbing you will arrive at the entrance of the Manu National Park in the Acjanaco pass (3560 masl), with a spectacular view of the Kosñipata cloud forest. Thus begins the magical descent to Manu Park.
Tambopata from Cusco
Tambopata, the river that flows into the Madre de Dios right in the city of Puerto Maldonado (capital of the department of Madre de Dios) houses a series of lodgings distributed on its banks. With a biological diversity as extensive as that of Manu, Tambopata has become a destination appreciated by those who enjoy nature.
The city of Puerto Maldonado has the Padre José Aldamiz Airport, receives regular domestic flights from the cities of Lima and Cusco and connections. Normally all flights to Puerto Maldonado stop in the city of Cusco.
To visit the Tambopata National Reserve from Cusco, you must have an organized tour and prior authorization from the National Service of Natural Protected Areas, normally previously coordinated by the tour operator from Puerto Maldonado.
